Are leopards endangered species?



  1. 0 Votes

    According to the US Fish and Wildlife services, leopards found south of (and including) Congo, Gabon, Kenya, Uganda and Zaire are considered threatened. Leopards found everywhere else, however, are considered endangered. Clouded and snow leopards are considered endangered regardless of location (their natural habitats are within Asia).

    There was a large decline in the leopard population in the 1960s and 1970s due to hunting. Today, they face threats from farmers who trap or poison them. Habitat loss, commercial hunting, and declining prey populations are also modern threats to leopards. There are an estimated 500,000 left in the world.
